RIDOH Recommends Closing Spouting Rock Beach for Swimming

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) recommends closing Spouting Rock Beach in Newport for swimming because of high bacteria counts. The beach is also known as Bailey's Beach.

When a beach closure is recommended, water quality analysis is conducted by RIDOH's laboratory or a state-certified laboratory. The status of a beach may change daily. The most up-to-date beach information is available through a recorded message on RIDOH's beaches telephone line (401-222-2751).
